Introducing Brazilian Barihunk Caio Monteiro

Caio Monteiro in Plätze. Dächer. Leute. Wege
Brazilian baritone Caio Monteiro is currently starring in the experimental opera/theater piece "Plätze. Dächer. Leute. Wege," which explores the interrelation of space, language and musical sound. The work at Theater Bielefeld is a collaboration between composer Gordon Kampe, visual artist Ivan Bazak and dramaturge Katharina Ortmann and deals with the utopian ideals of a city. 

Monteiro began his music studies at the Universidade Estadual before continuing at the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart and the Music Academy in Mannheim. Since the 2013-14 season he has been a permanent member of the Theater Bielefeld, where he has performed Guglielmo in Così fan tutte, Alberich in the Ring Cycle, Junius in The Rape of Lucretia, the Imperial Commissioner in Madama Butterfly and Dandini in La Cenerentola.

Monteiro can be seen next month at Theater Bielefeld as Horatio in Thomas' Hamlet with Evgueniy Alexiev in the title role.
